Son of good family, [...] (7) his thoughts are like an earth since there is no high or low in his mind; (8) he is free from thoughts by pure morality; (9) his thought is liberated and the gate is free from hindrance (mukha-anāvṛta) by accomplishing all sacrifices; (10) he has perfected memory and eloquence by investigating the dharma; (11) he depends on the knowledge of supernatural powers by going to immeasurable Buddha-fields”.
